Goods movement in IW41

All,

I've got the issue that a non-stock-item (item category 'n'), which is shown in the components-list of a PM-order, doesn't appear in the table showing components for goods movements in IW41.

Eventually, this behaviour leads to the increase of stock, even though it has already been consumed by PM. Did anybody ever experience that issue?

Thx & regards,

Bobby

    PR for non stock item is created with order account assignment.PO will be created against the PR and when GR is performed agaisnt the PO then stock will get issue automatically against the work order.You dont have to perform any GI for work order.

    Moreover,the GR of nonstock item can't be done during completion confirmation.

      Hi Boban,

      You wrote:

      During the goods receipt, the costs are posted onto the PM-order and the stock is increased by the order quantity. When I confirm the operation in the order, the actual working hours are posted and the stock is NOT decreased.

      This is not standard SAP behaviour, you have to check the account assignment category for the Purchase order. It should be F (order) The standard mvt is 101 but the stock is not updated. Cost will go to the PM order and booked on the gl account based on the valuation type of the material.

      Check with the MM guys what they have changed, They have maybe used an enhancement to get the system act like that.

      The problem can also be in the MM customzing of the material type, check this too. Maybe there you can change the settings that no stock update will take place.

      Don't create a new movenemt type, the probelm can be fixed with standard SAP.

    In IW41, Goods movement will show the materials which are having Item category as L in the concern order. Non stock items will not be displayed in that.

      Ensure the account assignment for PR is "F" using the following configuration menu then stock will not be updated upon goods receipt for purchase order.

      IMG => PM & CS => Maintenance & Service Processing => Maintenance & Service Orders => General Data => Define Account assignment for PR

    Helpfully answers were given, but the issue wasn't really solved. Thanks for the input though!
